Dear Friends and Family,
For many, a world without bleeding disorders is simply a dream. Thousands of kids and adults affected face internal bleeding, costly treatments and lifelong infusions.
I'm participating in the SoCal Unite for Bleeding Disorders Walk - a fundraising event to support those, like Cole, living with bleeding disorders in my community. Bleeding disorders, such as hemophilia, are a life-long condition, with no cure.
As most of you know, we have had some challenges since Cole’s diagnosis, including 2 line infections (one of which caused him to seize and code in the hospital), an inhibitor which made his treatment no longer effective, multiple joint and muscle bleeds, and a severe mouth bleed, which required him to receive red blood cell transfusions, as well as multiple Factor infusions.
Fortunately, we are happy to report that Cole is currently doing well and is as energetic as ever, in large part thanks to the support of the Hemophilia Foundation of Southern California.
My personal goal is to raise as much as possible for this worthy cause, to help my son and others like him. Will you make a tax-deductible contribution by donating what you can? It’s fast and easy - just click “SUPPORT ME” above to make a secure donation. To join our team and walk with us, please click on Cole Train above or visit https://www.uniteforbleedingdisorders.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.team&teamID=13854
Every dollar stays within our community and supports critical initiatives such as ensuring families have access to quality healthcare and providing access to the best educational resources available. Your donation also allows children with bleeding disorders to attend Camp Blood Brothers and Sisters, where they enjoy a fun, memorable experience with others their age, while learning more about their condition and the life-saving technique of self-infusion.
Thank you SO much in advance for your support! Together, we will make a difference in the lives of those living with bleeding disorders, such as hemophilia.
Look forward to seeing you on November 4 at Whittier Narrows!
